There is an urgent need to address the situation in Gaza. I most recently discussed Gaza with Jason Greenblatt, the President's Special Representative for International Negotiations, on 4 April. I stressed the need for restraint and discussed the importance of bringing forward proposals to adrress the situation in Gaza. The Foreign Secretary discussed the situation in Gaza with Jared Kushner in Washington DC on 7 May. Our Embassy in Washington DC also regularly discusses the situation in Gaza with US Government officials.
